Transfer of Credit Policies and Articulation Agreements
Students who have completed coursework at other colleges are welcome to transfer credits from those previous undergraduate experiences. To qualify for transfer credit, courses must meet the following criteria.
- Credits are applicable to MLC degree requirements.
- Credits relate to a comparable MLC course, a rule of thumb being 2/3 similar material/concepts.
- Credits earned carry a grade of C or higher.
Applicability of transfer credits is re-evaluated when students change their program of study. Questions about transcript decisions are directed to the Education Dean or Pre-Seminary Dean. Appeals of transcript decisions are addressed to the Vice President for Academics (whose decision is final).
Transfer Students with a Bachelor’s Degree
Upon matriculation to Martin Luther College, transfer students who have previously completed a bachelor’s degree at a regionally accredited institution need to complete only those general education credits that fulfill standards for Minnesota teacher licensure and synod certification.
Enrollment at Other Institutions
A student enrolled at Martin Luther College may take courses at other accredited institutions for transfer credit. Students should receive prior approval from their academic dean for courses they wish to take elsewhere. Enrollment concurrent with MLC’s fall or spring semester at another institution is discouraged. A transfer course approval form is available online from the Records Office. Only courses with a C grade or better are accepted in transfer.
